With Birthright: Virtual Childbirth Education, you will receive peace-of-mind about giving birth by gaining the knowledge and skills you need to have a comfortable, safe birth and easy recovery so you can enjoy your pregnancy and actually look forward to giving birth.
Has Your Childbirth Preparation Gotten Lost In The Shuffle?
As a 21st century mom, it's harder than ever to find the time to prepare for childbirth.
You're busier than ever before, and have less and less time to go hunting through pregnancy book after pregnancy book, just "hoping" you're prepared. And, when you're living in such a fast-paced world day in and day out, juggling schedules, researching your options, and setting aside the time to attend live childbirth classes is virtually impossible.
Skimping on your childbirth preparation is the sure-fire way to end up with the long, complicated birth experience you desperately want to avoid.
In the immortal words of Benjamin Franklin:
"By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail..."
As your life gets busier, so does your care provider's. With the average care provider seeing more than 50 patients per day with each visit lasting less than 5 minutes, you'll spend less than 2 hours with your care provider during your entire pregnancy. That's simply not enough time to get answers to all your questions - it's up to you to seek out this information on your own.

An Innovative 3 Tiered-Approach
Tier I - The Program Components
A. The Core Curriculum
From prenatal preparation to handling complications, the 14 detailed lessons in the core curriculum form the foundation of the program. Written in a one-to-one, conversational tone, each lesson feels like having a heart-to-heart conversation with a friend in the comfort of your own home, not a stuffy lecture in a sterile hospital full of strangers.
You will learn quickly and easily from manageable amounts of material at a time. No more struggling to pay attention in class after a hard day at work. You'll complete the program at your own pace, taking as much time as you need for each lesson - when and where you want.
Its flexible format eliminates the woes of struggling to remember hours and hours of lecture. You'll have detailed reference materials to review and revisit during your entire pregnancy so you never have to worry about forgetting a single detail.
You'll also be able to prepare simultaneously with your chosen birth companion(s) - any time, anywhere. With a computer and an internet connection, they'll be able to prepare right along with you. Lesson XI is devoted to teaching your birth companion(s) how to support you during birth, so that you can both be at ease once labor unfolds.

am so excited that I
came across your website!!! I am 5 months pregnant with our first and I
am doing all in my power to have a natural, unmedicated birth.
I found the "Newborn Procedure" lesson to be particularly informative and useful. I am so glad you put that information out there. It's scary what they do to babies these days! Also, I want to say that your website looks very professional and I cannot find another that even compares.
you very much for
the course. I have already begun looking at the material and
am very happy with it.
you for your
wonderful program. It's a shame that so many women view birth
as an oppressive feature of their womanhood instead of a beautiful gift.
admire what you've
done with the JEWEL of a web site and online educational ministry.
